morgage calculator

i need toi write the program in Java (without a graphical user interface) and have it calculate the payment amount for 3 mortgage loans:

- 7 year at 5.35%
- 15 year at 5.5%
- 30 year at 5.75%

Use an array for the different loans. Display the mortgage payment amount for each loan.

so far i have the following code. i am lost to the next steps i should take to create this...all help will be appreciated
code below

public class wtest
 {

 public static void main (String[] args)
 {
 double principal =2000000.0;
 double rate =5.75;
 double term =30.0;
 double monthlyPayment =0.0;

 rate = rate/1200.0;
 term = term * 12;
 monthlyPayment = principal * rate/ (1.0 - Math.pow(rate+1,-term));
 System.out.println(monthlyPayment);
 }

 }[/color]



public class Wtest {
public static void main (String[] args) {
double principal = 2000000.0; // nice house!
double[] rates = { 5.35, 5.5, 5.75 };
double[] terms = { 7.0, 15.0, 30.0 };
for (int i = 0; i < rates.length; ++i) {

Are you just looking for the rest of the loop?
for (int i = 0; i < rates.length; i++)
{
System.out.print(terms[i] + " year at " + rates[i] + "%:");
monthlyPayment = principal * rates[i]/ (1.0 - Math.pow(rates[i]+1,-terms[i]));
System.out.println(monthlyPayment);
}

Seems every Java intro course has this problem.

Your first start (class wtest) will print a correct amount that just needs formatting. (See Java class NumberFormat http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/NumberFormat.html.)

Your abortive second attempt (class Wtest) has been completed by DarrenMcCall above. DM relied on your data, which needed the adjustments you made in your first attempt: the annual rate needs to be expressed as a monthly rate, etc.

You're almost there: keep going!
